Hugh Pickens writes writes "Tony Bradley writes that news is spreading quickly online that HP is going to clear out its vast TouchPad inventory by dropping the price to an offer you can't refuse. Rumor has it that beginning Saturday the 16Gb TouchPad will be $99, and the 32Gb TouchPad will be a measly $149. "It is actually a fairly capable tablet. It's just not an iPad 2," writes Bradley. "For $500 it was a joke. For $300 it was still a shady deal. For $99 it's a steal." HP has learned the hard way, and quickly pulled the plug on its tablet proving that HP never had a solid tablet or mobile strategy and that it was really just looking for an excuse to get out. "The reality is that my Best Buy is swimming in unsold HP TouchPad inventory," adds Bradley. "I went out tonight and picked mine up at the regular $400 price to beat the rush. Situations like this are why they invented price matching. I can just go back with my receipt once the fire sale starts and get the price adjusted and the difference refunded.""

    Actually, the best buy terms state:

    Does the HP TouchPad tablet qualify for the Price Match policy?
    No. The HP TouchPad is on clearance and we will no longer be selling the units so we will not offer any price matches. We do offer a 60-day return/exchang

  • at 6 am and bought an HP Touchpad at the full price.

    The manager says the price reduction will hit their store in a few days.

    When it does, just bring the Touchpad back in, use their 15 day no-questions-asked return policy to return it, then buy it back at the reduced price.

    This will make a nice gift for my nephew who has been wanting a tablet for college.
